    Question Backtrack dragon on a Alfa copy?

    Found this today:
    https://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.35688

    ..thought the design was kind of interesting.

    From what I dug up there appears to be a copyright on something similar by a certain JB Manning.

    As far as I recall the actual dragon image was made by a tattoo artist, there was a post on it on the old forums a while ago
    with a bit of to and from regarding the legalities of using the image.

    Not sure how that panned out, but image is still in use, so would assume all in favour of the backtrack team !

    It's being sold out of China, what'd you expect? If they thought it would sell, they'd stick a Windows logo on it. Even so, I picked up one just to see what comes in the box.

    So, in the box you get the adapter, a 6dbi omni antenna, a suction cup, usb cable, and a dvd with the windows drivers, backtrack 3 and what looks like backtrack 4 pre final. Chipset drivers are RTL8187.

    Gotta say, it's pretty sensitive. Non-scientific test is showing 24 networks from my desk where I usually only see about 10.

    eheheh yep seems to be the same hardware as another chinese box, that travel with BT3.

    btw something funny, was debugging a project website when opened that url, and so got my firefox error console on, look what happened when i go to the dealextreme website :



    Funny, wasn't aware that FF is able to warn me about some potential sec hole , lol

    after some little googling , i found this
    That message is meant for webmasters to make them aware that they need to fix their servers.
    Firefox 3.6 versions can detect such a misconfiguration and displays a warning in the "Tools > Error Console".

    I bought this "dragon" copy from dealextreme and it works wery well,
    cheap also.
    With a r8187-drivers it can be set to full txpower 30, but works well with a rtl8187 driver also.
    Planning to buy few more.
